Your mother spends so much time down by the waterfront that she's preferable to the Sheriffs department for making a quick rescue.

MontanaDave: Kaiku: Followup: 911 dispatcher fired for violating company policy and sending someone other than trained medical personnel to deal with an emergency.

I'm afraid it will be this.

In Cathlamet? Not going to happen. This isn't some Nancy-boy nanny-state part of the country your talking about. Bootstraps, people. Bootstraps.

My grandfather, god rest his soul, lived near Cathlamet and rescued a tourist who capsized his canoe and was also clinging to a piling. 80 year old grandpa and his 75 year old neighbor motored out and plucked him out of the river.

I guess the lesson is to not go canoeing on the Columbia; or at least stay close to the pilings.
